  1. It us usually those who have never been born again that deride the doctrine of being born again, but I'm sorry, the Lord Jesus Christ said in John 3:3 that "You must be born again." It is usually those who know nothing about scripture that make fun of those that have placed their hope in scripture. So you say it is "silliness about having been chosen before the foundation of the world". Me thinks it is dangerous to call Almighty God a "divine Dictator" and a "Divine Monster" because I said He chose me before the foundation of the world. Ephesians 1:3 thru 6 "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in Christ with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places even as he chose us in him [Christ] before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and blameless before him. In love he predestined us for adoption to himself as sons through Jesus Christ, according to the purpose of his will, to the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved." God chooses us we don't choose Him. Our puny sinful free will cannot supersede Almighty God's divine will. What God says will happen, WILL happen. Who God says He will save, He will save. No I don't need nor does God require any ridiculous Catholic sacraments to be saved. One is saved by grace through faith and nothing more. No sacraments have ever saved anyone nor can they save anyone nor will they ever save anyone. Only God can save you, John 6:44 "No one can come to me unless the Father who sent me draws him." Benji
  2. If Trump walked on water the liberal media's headlines would read Trump Can't Swim!
  3. Clear as mud, and I prefer it stay that way. After studying the beliefs of the RCC and speaking to a number of them in person I am so glad I am a born again Christian, chosen before the foundation of the world to be in Christ and now I am holy and blameless in God's sight. I don't need any sacrements to be saved, all I needed was God drawing me into a relationship with Him. Benji
  4. It sounds to me that if one really wants to be a better more Christlike Christian all he need to do is to drink more of His blood and eat more of His flesh. Don't just eat one piece of the bread (meat) take a whole mouthful and don't just sip a small amount of the wine (blood) drink the entire chalice. I AM NOT being a smart Alec, I am trying to understand this Catholic belief. If this is how one receives Christ then why sip when you can gulp? Why nibble on the bread when you can eat a whole loaf? I want all of Jesus I can get and if I can get Him by drinking wine and eating bread, sign me up. I would LOVE to be more Christlike. Again I am NOT trying to be divisive I am trying to understand this completely (to me) foreign belief. If the wine actually becomes the very blood of the Son of God who called Himself "The Son of Man" then the man Jesus Christ" had about 1.5 gallons of blood flowing through His veins before His death and probably only a few ounces after His death. Is Jesus making more of His blood in heaven and sending it to earth each time the priest offers the cup? Is He making more of His body in heaven too? Why does the wine still taste like wine and the bread still taste like bread? Shouldn't it taste like meat and blood if it is the actual body and blood of Christ? Why did Jesus use bread and wine instead of His actual body and blood? He could have taken one of the swords they had in the upper room and cut Himself to obtain the meat and blood, but He didn't. He used bread and wine. Why? Benji
  5. Some churches teach that we are not totally depraved, that we retained some of God's goodness that He imputed to Adam and Eve prior to the fall and even though mankind fell, we didn't fall so low that all of His goodness in us was erased. We are basically good people with a few minor faults and all we need to do is "fan the flames in our souls" and God will be revived within us. They will also say "we are the captain's of our souls. If we want to get saved we can, or if we decide we don't want to get saved we will not." As for me, I will quote Al on the TV sitcom Home Improvement, "I don't think so Tim." Benji 🙂
  6. If Jesus isn't God then who is He? Is He another God who is not quite almighty, but perhaps just mighty? Isaiah 43:10 "You are my witnesses," declares the LORD, "and my servant whom I have chosen, so that you may know and believe me and understand that I am He. Before me no god was formed, nor will there be one after me." Did God change His mind and decide that after Isaiah died He was going to create another God and call Him Jesus? If so where can I find this in scripture? If Jesus isn't God why is He called God in 32 New Testament verses? Why do we worship Jesus if He isn't God. We are strictly forbidden by God to worship any other god, yet Jesus was worshiped in the NT at least six times. Why did Thomas call Jesus God in John 20:28? Perhaps Thomas was mistaken? There is only one God and One Lord. Eph 4:5-6 "One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all." Not two, just one. Benji
  7. I will chime in here. First lets find out how many Gods there are according to God's word, after all He should know! Keep in mind that God's word is the absolute truth. I will only quote one passage that states how many Gods there are to save space and time. Isaiah 43:10b "....I am he: before me there was no God formed, neither shall there be after me." So based on this there is only one God, not thousands like the Mormons teach or two like the JW's teach. Titus 2:13 "[We are] waiting for our blessed hope, the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior Jesus Christ." Not of our great God and of our great Savior Jesus Christ. Acts 5:3&4 "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost, and to keep back part of the price of the land? While it remained, was it not thine own? and after it was sold, was it not in thine own power? why hast thou conceived this thing in thine heart? thou hast not lied unto men, but unto God." Did the writer of Acts make a mistake here? First he said Ananias lied to the Holy Spirit but in the very next verse he said he lied to God. So who did Ananias lie to, God or the Holy Spirit? Both and at the same time. The Holy Spirit is God and God is the Holy Spirit. Benji

    Gay pride month, now for kids?!

    I can't find any edit button. I'm guessing that after a set amount of time the author can no longer edit the post. Maybe the admin can do it for me? Benji
  9. Any or all. A simple phone call from someone could easily land one in federal prison, although just thinking about it now that we no longer have a Communist in the White House maybe some sanity might once again prevail. Benji
  10. These same guys would be the first to have you arrested if you damaged a bald eagle's egg. Their reasoning? Because if left alone it will soon be a bald eagle. They are blinded by Satan that a fetus if left alone will soon be a person. As Jesus said of people like this "ye are of your father the devil. He was a liar from the beginning." Benji

    The teacher announced to the class that they were going to learn a new word today, and the word was officiate. She asks if anyone can give her a sentence with the word officiate in it. Little Johnny raises his hand and says "my sister got sick from a fish she ate." benji

    I have found the Institute for Creation Research an excellent resourse for biblical answers to scientific questions. The evilutionists hate them so they must be good!!! Benji
  13. Do you know what a bad doctor and a guy with a short temper have in common? Neither one has any patience. Benji
  14. Yes I have heard of it but just in passing. Hopefully it will die a quick death. Benji
  15. Yup you read that right. It was in the newspaper last night. The cops arrested them for assault and battery. Benji
